Try installing the latest root certificate update from MS.  See this link http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=19C4AE49-1127-4537-9E91-35F81D20BCE6&displaylang=en

mrcannonCommented:
Yes.  The link should after validating windows should lead you to rootsupd.exe which will reinstall/repair root certificates.  Worth a try.

Try manually installing the updates SSl certs from here:
http://www.verisign.com/support/ssl-certificates-support/page_dev028341.html

Also make sure that you system clock is correct (date and time). Even if it looks correct, your PC may not have the correct Time Zone selected, or if it's a couple of years old, you may need to apply the Daylight Savings patch from a couple of years ago when the DST times were changed:
